Happy Birthday to us! We're Petties Pet Blog Finalists!

Here's the story of our weekend birthday trip to Asheville
and Highlands, NC.... rain, rain and more rain!
We were so busy celebrating my birthday in the North Carolina mountains this past weekend that I nearly missed that we made the Petties finals!

We're so honored to be named a finalist in the Best Overall Blog category in the 2013 DogTime Petties awards. It really came as quite the birthday surprise, and honestly, I didn't see our finalist notification until our pals at SlimDoggy and Terrier Torrent, who were also named finalists in different categories, left us a note on our Facebook page! Thank you pals!

We're in amazing company with some terrific blogs that were named finalists across all the categories. Thanks to everyone who nominated us, but now the fun's just begun!
Here's how you can help us donate $1,000 to a pet rescue group!
From now until July 31, voting is open to vote for your favorite blogs in each category. And, the winner in each category will win a $1,000 donation to the pet rescue group of their choice!

So please vote for us in the Best Overall Blog category by casting your vote for To Dog With Love on the Petties voting page today and every day until the end of the month! That's right you can vote once a day!

Winners will be announced in an online ceremony in September. And remember, only the winner in each category will get the $1,000 shelter grant. So please vote early and vote often! Cast your vote for To Dog With Love here and vote for our pals in the other categories too! If we win, Rocco will give you a big slurpy kiss next time we see you!

More on our birthday trip to dog-friendly Asheville and Highlands, N.C., later this week!
